Reinvention To My Best Version

Friday, March 29, 2013

New life. I am not a religious person per say, but I could not help but reflect today about Good Friday. This season, as we all know, is about defeat and victory. New life in this victory. Spring rises from the depths of winter and breathes new life into every single one of us. I am here for new life. Not just weight loss, but the best version of myself. I want to feel better physically, and I want to smile more, and I want to be excited about small things in life, to name a few goals of my Reinvention... I lost almost 40 pounds during my first membership, only to gain it back again over a few short years. For the last few years, I have been in the depths of my winter. I was living with defeat. The other day I woke up and said to myself, "Blue, do not settle for this life." That is when my Spring truly began. New life after the depths of my winter. One step closer to my best version....

    I lost 40 pounds the first time on SP, but gained it back when I was pregnant and have even gained a bit more in the four years since then. I have been so discouraged about it, but I am forgiving myself and moving on now! SP worked well last time, and I am ready to work it again. I have been watching the videos on Coach, and they have inspired me to find the time I need to do this.

    I always find it to be so funny to look back on my despair once I have gotten in the groove, thinking "Huh, that wasn't SO hard- how come it took me so long to just do it?" I don't know what magic helps you get over the hump, really, but I am sending lots of good vibes your way.

    I know you can do it Blue. Everybody go thru experience of lose and gain. I've been there too. I gained 16 pounds in just a matter of 4 month last year. But I am so glad I lost the pounds and you can too. So glad to know you are waking up from the Winter.
    My favorite short quote" Winter always become Spring!! " Remember, I am always here to help, if you need some support Ok?
